As we all prepare for Muppet domination this weekend when Disney’s The Muppets draws crowds to theaters, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at another Muppet production that happened right here at Walt Disney World Resort.
In May 1990, “The Muppets at Walt Disney World,” a one-hour television special, had the entire Muppet crew visiting a Florida swamp to meet Kermit’s family. Of course, when the gang figures out that Walt Disney World is just across the swamp, they insist on visiting the vacation kingdom.
The special takes the Muppets all over the Resort including Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa where Miss Piggy checks in for a stay (above), and Fozzie and his Mom take a break for some tea (below).
And while I haven’t seen “The Muppets at Walt Disney World” (though I wish I had, it looks fantastic), I have seen the new Muppet movie. It’s silly, fun, and an overall great time at the movies. So check it out after you’re stuffed yourself silly with turkey – you’ll be glad you did.
